Not really. It's not a happy place. Not that we are the least bit sympathetic toward Raffaello Follieri. We're just saying. He hates it in there. Sucker.

The convicted felon ex-boyfriend of Anne Hathaway says his health has deteriorated due to "unspeakably unsanitary" jail conditions he must endure.

He has requested a transfer. Good luck with that.

Raffaello Follieri once enjoyed a lavish lifestyle and dated Hathaway for years before he was arrested in June for fraud in an elaborate real estate scam.

Since he was sentenced to four and a half years in the slammer for fraud last month, he has had to contend with rotten food, foul odors and unclean toilets and as result is running a fever and has blood in his urine, his lawyer said Wednesday.

"He can't eat because the food appears to be spoiled and the toilet and shower facilities are unspeakably unsanitary," a letter from Flora Edwards reads. "There is excrement in the shower and rats roam freely in the area. The stench is intolerable."

On the flip side, if it makes the incarcerated Raffaello feel better, some of our interns have said the same things about The Hollywood Gossip's office park.

Follieri is being held in a windowless dormitory with 120 other men. Edwards requested he be moved to a different jail while awaiting transfer to a prison.

The a$$ clown pleaded guilty to netting at least $2.4 million from a scheme that exaggerated (or made up, to be more accurate) Vatican ties to mislead investors into thinking he could buy the Catholic Church's real estate at cheaper prices.

Hathaway, who starred in The Devil Wears Prada and is now dating Adam Shulman, whoever that is, said she was shocked when Follieri was arrested.

When celebrity babies and parents collide ... cuteness often ensues.

Christine Taylor, wife of Ben Stiller, gushed about how the couple's 6-year-old daughter, Ella, loves to play with Suri Cruise, as she gets to play the "older sister."

Please No More Babies

Taylor, whose hubby directed Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder, said Ella thinks having Suri Cruise, 2, follow her around is great - it makes her feel like a big girl!

"We've had a couple of play dates - they're just like any other play dates," said Christine. "[Suri's] amazing, [Tom and Katie Holmes] are terrific. When little kids get together you just let them do their thing and there's no outside elements."

And Ella just loves being the older sister.

"It's always just a great thing to see your kids connecting and you see all the different stages," Taylor added. "Ella used to always be the one looking up to the older girls and now she's kind of taken on that kind of big girl role."

In was a little over a week ago that Jesse Csincsak revealed via webcam that his world had been shattered by fiancee DeAnna Pappas.

Today, the spurned snowboarder is opening up about the breakup and discussing his dating future in a deep interview with TV Guide ...

Q: Why go on YouTube to present your side? Why not just issue a joint press release?

Jesse Csincsak: We were going to do that, but some people found out [before we wanted]. The easiest thing seemed to be to hop on the webcam and put it on YouTube. I did it because I wanted to tell the fans what happened. [DeAnna and I] have gone our separate ways. I love her and I wish her nothing but the best. I felt that that's what I portrayed on YouTube and I hope that's the way it was taken.

Q: What response are you getting?

Jesse Csincsak: Thousands of emails, 20,000 to 30,000 hits a day on my MySpace page and 5,000 emails to my MySpace page.

Q: Any ladies interested in picking up where DeAnna Pappas left off?

Jesse Csincsak: There are definitely a few ladies who have contacted me, but I'm taking things one day at a time.

Q: Did going on-camera allow you to express more how you truly felt?

Jessie Csincsak: Yeah. I figured there's no better way to tell someone how you feel than to get out there and look right into the screen and say this is what's going on. I spoke to the fans about how I was really feeling. I didn't discuss anything about what had gone on [privately]. The answer I got [from DeAnna Pappas] was that she loved me, but "wasn't in love with me." That's what she told me.

Truthfully, there is no other way to explain the promotional photo below, released to hype up Britney Spears' forthcoming album, Circus.

Without question, Britney Spears looks totally hot in the picture - in fact, she looks about as great as we have seen her in like six years.

Which is probably when Jive first took this photo, only to dig it out of the archives this week and airbrush it up real good. After cutting and pasting Jessica Simpson's weave and Heidi Montag's makeup and surgically-altered nose for good measure.

Seriously, props to the graphic designer for their awesome work here. At least the Britney Spears nude shots in the "Womanizer" video looked real.

WOW, WHO'S THAT GIRL? No, really, we're asking. Do you know?

Certain celebrity couples sizzle more than others. 

The alleged Cindy McCain affair, for instance, is not hot. Seriously. Not only is the whole story probably made up ... it's Cindy McCain. Woman is a little scary.

Rihanna Wax Figure

No one can deny the chemistry displayed by Rihanna and Chris Brown, however.

The hottest couple in music took time out from touring together in Australia for a little shopping at the Diesel store on Monday. Yummy. They are so fine ...

SOMEBODY CALL 911: We've got a seriously sizzling couple down under!

Cindy McCain scares our interns.

Seriously. She's either a cyborg or a raging botox addict. It's a tad frightening.

But the expressions of horror on their impressionable young faces will be nothing compared to how John McCain reacts if the photo below is legit.

According to the National Enquirer, multiple witnesses have caught Cindy McCain locking lips with man other than her husband on several occasions.

"I couldn't believe I was watching Cindy McCain passionately hugging and kissing another man," said one conveniently anonymous eyewitness.

Cindy McCain Affair

This incriminating National Enquirer photo shows a studly man putting the moves on Cindy McCain. Or one of about 75 million other blonde women in the United States.

The failed presidential candidate's wife has supposedly been seeing - and acting "very lovey dovey" with an unidentified "long-haired man who resembles a washed-up '80s rock musician" at concerts and sporting events of late.

According to reports, Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom recently and secretly proposed to his Victoria's Secret model girlfriend Miranda Kerr.

Supposedly they are planning to walk down the aisle in late 2009.

“They are talking about getting married in a year. They have had a crazy year, but they love each other and she wants to be his wife,” reports Metro (UK).

KerrBloom

KERRBLOOM: Orlando Bloom already sees Miranda Kerr nude on a regular basis. But he's got to tie the knot with her so we can immortalize their couple nickname.

If this is true, we wish them the best, although we are somewhat skeptical that fewer celebrity gossip sites haven't reported it. Then again, Orlando Bloom just isn't that interesting. Sorry, ladies. He's hot, sure. But besides that, what's to say?

No word on whether Miranda Kerr has been called very "uncool" by Kate Bosworth. Or whether Kate Bosworth is so sick over this news that she's stopped eating.

She used to date Raffaello Follieri, until a federal prison sentence for fraud put an end to that blissful union of love, $37,000-a-month rent and hummers at sea.

Now she's supposedly with Adam Shulman. Whoever that is.

Anne Hathaway turns 26 today, which is remarkable as it seems like she's been around forever. Maybe it's just that the New York City native's rare combination of talent and classic beauty make every day so much more memorable.

Here's a little photo tribute to the Brokeback Mountain, Devil Wears Prada and Rachel Getting Married star. Click to enlarge any of the photos below ...
